    Question Find ebook reader for linux named "Reed"


    I am trying to find and ebook reader for Ubuntu et al. I found a 2006 article describing Reed with a write up and alcolades. The links to the program and down load no longer seem valid NOTE: publishingcentral.com. I would like information on where to download the program so I can try it... Any assistance will be much appreciated.

    I suppose the site is down because ebooks use DRM
    and there is no legal free reader. No doubt that's
    also why ebooks is a dead technology. It's locked in to
    proprietary devices that no one wants to buy. A paperback
    is cheaper. Anyway, it's illegal to crack them.

When I use windows I use Microsoft Reader to Open the books and I am looking for the same functionality in a Linux program. Reed seemed to be a possibility from the article describing it...
